It was hilarious and made me laugh out loud, it made me angry, it made me sad, it made me cry and made me feel happy. But sweet hell, some of the encounters and thoughts that the main character had were just unnecessary and outright disturbing.

Dawn is the bestselling author of The Cows and the Richard and Judy Book Club pick So Lucky, and her latest non-fiction title Life in Pieces was also a Sunday Times bestseller. Sometimes however having it 'all' isn't all it's cracked to be - having to put up with her husband's ex-wife who spends way too much time at their house. Told with Dawn’s trademark warmth, wit, and irreverence, CAT LADY is a story about defying labels and forging friendships. I enjoyed the fact that the protagonist was an older lady - in her 40s but she wasn't relatable to me in any way, shape, or form. Mia is a good wife to husband Tristan, a genuinely loving and caring step-mum to his kids by his last marriage, and very good at her job.

Dawn O'Porter is a broadcaster, novelist and print journalist who lives in Los Angeles with her husband Chris, cat Lilu and dog Potato. I think a lot of people worry about something happening to their fur babies, which obviously Mia really struggles with that. Stars – Entertaining as an audiobook and it has some emotional punches, but my take away was “well, that was odd.The part where the book officially lost me, I think, was when the main character's inner monologue went on this strange fantasy about how she wanted her cat to lick some sort of food off of her back, which was followed by her musing that she understood about the (theoretical) woman she'd heard about who let her dog lick her where dogs absolutely should not lick someone! When the silent protagonist cat has more personality than literally all the characters in a 300+ page book, there’s a bit of an issue. I did enjoy the development of some of the characters, especially (colleague designer) and how she fought for what she believed to be right within the company, even if it did feel a little half- hearted at times. It’s definitely one to read if you’re a pet owner as it represents the grief over losing a pet quite accurately, as well as examining the “crazy cat lady” stereotype. The story skips along – and has the standard SHOCK moment that I’ve come to expect from Dawn’s fiction books.

Mia has made the best of her life after a difficult childhood: good job, nice house and a stable marriage. She's never actually fibbed about Pigeon, she's just let the rest of the group ASSUME that she's gone. Grief, tackled at its finest with a funny side story and eccentric characters, make this a fabulous read.There isn't much of a synopsis for this novel so I wasn't sure what I was going to get but it day say 'very funny'. Mia is 45, and happily married (separate bedrooms), lives in a nice house (originally bought by her hubby and his first wife), is a great step mum (although the first wife/mother is always popping round); has a great job (she has to micromanage the gormless chief executive) and is in love (with her cat, 'Pigeon') and is pretty much living the ideal conventional life, but is this the life that Mia wants? It’s not 100% fundamental to the story, it could easily have been tweaked to still fit in the plot lines without it having to be changed.

A fancy house, a husband, a stepson, a fancy job with a jewellery company and best of all, a cat that she loves with all her heart.Not something I think a lot of women would endure and I was overjoyed to see Mia handling her own with the woman’s snooty attitude.
